Write the chemical symbols for three different atomic anions that all have 34 protons

Answers

Explanation:

First of all it should be noted that number of protons is called atomic number in chemistry. The atom that has the atomic number of 34 in the periodic table is Selenium (Se). Anions are negatively charged atoms; the negative charge means the atoms have lost electron(s) while still having the same number of protons.

From the above, we can deduce that the only atom that can have 34 protons is Se and for it to become negatively charged (anion), it must lose electron(s).

The different chemical symbols thereof will be Se⁻,Se²⁻, Se³⁻ if it loses one, two or three electrons respectively while still having the atomic number of 34
